Hey heretics, recently I've noticed that heresy online is really starting to stagnate in terms of traffic and stuff so it got me wondering. What can the members of heresy online do to increase the number of posting members?. I love this site and I'd hate I see it die like so many other forums out there.

Cheers!.

We should begin posting quality stuff. Actual Tacticas like @Mossy Toes did. (I will not do this. Never ever.)
However, i feel that the Talkwargaming enterprise has "robbed" the board of a great number of contents. If the writers post stuff there and not here...well...that's it.
Also, quite a good number of newbyes have come recently. I suggest to all the vets to start "nurturing" those noobz, even if that means repeating the same stuff again and again. I'v tryed that and i hope and think to have done my part. We should give quick and exhaustive answers to noobz and to anyone who ask stuff. If they are answered, they will come back. If their initial post has 2-3 mild answers, they will never return.

EDIT: Also, we have TEN (10) pages of unanswered posts. I think that, sadly, there is not much we can do.

Otherwise we could start offering mature content. Daemonettes handjob. Nurgle drones blowjobs. Tyranid hentai. Space marines **** hard core. Imperial guard platoon gangbang. You know...that kind of content that makes the beardy fat gamers sweat on thei chairs..

Well, my friend, I believe I have the exact cure for our traffic ills.

There is only a few truly active writers at TWG and they are not originally from here, they came from other places. This place is dead because it never truly updated from 5th edition in terms of content.

Nor has it fully embraced the glories of tentacle porn.

The sad thing is that porn stuff gets more traffic because its the primary demographic of the Internet haha.
Everyone's gotta get a little squid love in the morning, bro.

Or are you simply thinking my thoughts, but have always believed them to be your own? What if your mind is simply an extension of my own? If so, I'm sorry for the twitches. Fucking squirrels, man.

guess this is half the truth. Other half is that if those writers had written here...well, we would be filled with contents. just needed to do the recruitment here.
anyway...not willing to enter this argument. i'll stop here.

Those writers are paid for thier articles at TWG. When this option was offered here, no one stepped up. You might as well blame every other writer of content on the internet for the low volume here. It amounts to the same result and impact.

no one stepped up, because the advertisement was made on this very board...that was even then "stagnating". Anyhow...any suggestion on how to improve the traffic?

It's easy to blame the Great Russian Hacker Scheme of 201Whatever, but... like neferhet scscofield say, there's kind of a decided lack of tacticas, tutorials, etc. They aren't a guaranteed draw-X-users-per-post, but providing hits for folks googling warhammer stuff can't hurt. Rumors are pretty active, as are the Plogs and the CSM forums... but otherwise? I don't see too much activity.

Which begs the question, is there anybody kicking around on Heresy that is willing to update or even totally rewrite the WFB/40k Tacticas that we have?

Bringing in something similar for our other popular systems may/could/might work :)

There's also the perennial GW problem of change/cost/alienation.

Not only is our content out of date but GW seems to be in a losing position with the prices going up and the player base going down even as the content volume increases.

Perhaps then the answer is to diversify. Do we have Google analytics available on heresy?

Can we get detailed info on what people are actually here to view?

I imagine the Admin crew may be able to get stuff like that, but I wouldn't want to say for definite......

I have a general hankering to eventually write up a Daemons tactica like my CSM one, and now Khorne Daemonkin is splashing around in the pool too, so...

Could be nice to see something like that with some Warlord, Spartan or Corvus Belli (sp?) products.

GW products are a fairly crowded market, at least as forums go. That, and fuck, I think we've pretty much exhausted the interesting 40k fluff topics. The only reason I've stopped posting there is because I've seen every subject get rehashed more than 90 times, and after the 89th, it gets a tad repetitive.

tho i agree with your comment on nurturing noobz..i myself have stopped posting and replying due to the fact that i may suggest something and then another member will jump on and either dethred or simply trash what was written because they personally don't agree..therefore im wrong..this is not just me but i see this quite often in a lot of threads..this effects the unanswered posts aswell..ill go to reply and think..oh whats the point..someone will just trash what i suggest weather right/wrong so i don't waste my time
.
on a side note..what attracted me to heresy was the modelling and painting..but when you go to the trouble of finishing work and post them..and people cant take 2 seconds to comment that's also frustrating..so again i think why waste my time.

this question has also been asked many,mant times before and i dont think i can see any of the other suggestions said in the other threads have been heard.
just my 2 cents
